I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

Cloud "explosion" over the Sierras~Sunday Stills 081509




During our last trip to the Sierras, we both stopped and took photos of this incredible cloud formation. I think it looks like a "cloud explosion". What do you think? This was June of this year. Sunday Stills Challenge for August 16, 2009.

Or a big splash!

Agreed! Or an avalanche breaking out over the top of the mountain.

Volcanic rather with the mountain beneath it! Great capture. It's amazing what you can see in the clouds if you don't live in a hole like I do where you can only see the clouds just above your head. (So I'm really enjoying SS this week :D )

It does look like an explosion. Kind of like the mountains are erupting.
